On Love

The desire is that I be loved even if I lost everything, leaving nothing but "me", this mysterious "me" taken to be the self at its weakest, most vulnerable point.  Do you love me enough that I may be weak with you?  Everyone loves strength, but do you love me for my weakness?  That is the real test.  Do you love me stripped of everything that might be lost, for only the things I will have forever?
